As I do not eat much red meat, I looked forward to a good piece of beef in a country where good beef is prized. My steak was rather tough and disappointing, but maybe I am not the best judge. The locals seemed to love...More

Great service and good food! It was just across the hotel so we went and we had a great dinner, it has tables outside and the weather was great for this. Very good food if you are a meat lover.

El Porton is just outside of the old, historic part of Colonia and the prices are more reasonable here. It is a short five minute walk to the ferry terminal and about the same distance to the old town. The parilla meats are excellent plus...More

We arrived just before dinner opening time (20.00) and people were already waiting at the outside tables. The wait staff were pleasant, helpful, and gave us an English menu. Three of us ate spaghetti boldognese, fish with tomato and lettuce salad, and chicken with mushroom...More
